Well, we’re finally connected, no thanks to our ADSL provider. I decided to take matters into our own hands and try out a 3G internet service provided by one of the cell companies. So far we’re having decent results, though it’s obviously optimized for downstream (sometimes 2 Mb/s vs. 30 kb/s for upstream), which makes it difficult to do any video chatting. We’ll take what we can get at this point!
Once again, sorry for the lack of posting recently — I had my first bout of sickness this week (I’ve now thrown up here before Keely, which is saying something given her, um, condition). I missed a day and a half of work and that put the rest of week in turbo mode.
One happy thing to share is that we got to hear the baby’s heartbeat today!!! One of the women in our church group is a former OB nurse and has a portable Doppler fetal monitor; we tried a few weeks ago with no success, but today we heard it loud and clear! It was a pretty special moment, as I’m sure all those who’ve been in our shoes can attest.
